Ken Whipple of Lindal Cedar Homes says wine storage has come out of the basement in tandem with the larger trend of log-home owners moving to increase the features and functionality of their outdoor spaces. “We have done both interior and exterior wine cellars. There have been plenty of outdoor applications,” he says. “It’s just another example of how creative and well-designed outdoor spaces make the homeowner feel that the exterior and interior of their home has become unified as a living environment.”
Wirth adds that exterior wine cellars dug into the earth offer a greater temperature stability compared to their basement brethren. “Wine cellars benefit from the most stable temperatures when underground,” he says. “Simple thermostats and self-contained temperature control systems will be de rigueur in any wine-storage application, anyway.”
